Trip Report Belated Paris trip report, May 16-24 2014 part 2: the actual trip

Jump to last reply

Warning: I am writing this already delayed trip report with another serious handicap. Since writing the introduction, my journal has mysteriously disappeared. The current suspects are our two VERY lively young male Abyssinian cats, Dante and Giotto. But at any rate...

Day 2. We had an early Saturday morning breakfast at our hotel, then walked 20 minutes to the Rodin museum, perhaps my favorite in Paris. Our museum passes made for an easy entry and arriving near opening time meant that it was not yet crowded. (Note: we got the 6 day museum pass at the airport. They were a blessing, saved us both money and time. Our only caution is that there were a couple of days when we did too much (for us), because it was so easy and "free"). As always, it was lovely. My husband took some wonderful photographs of hands, I stopped, as always, to look at the detail of the "Gates of Hell" and we agreed to come back again to look at the exhibits which were inside.
As is our custom, we walked back to our hotel room for a short rest and then took a taxi to the lovely Canal St Martin area, which we had never seen before. After a short stroll, we had lunch at Philou, a charming, well-priced bistro near the canal recommended by a friend who has lived in Paris for 20 years. The food and service were excellent, atmosphere warmly traditional, including the menu of the day, written in on chalkboard. Two "plats" were 27 euro,
three were 34 euro. We walked some more around the Canal St Martin, went back to the hotel to nap, then I took a lovely walk alone through the Luxembourg gardens, something I would do almost daily. Supper was yoghurt, fruit and bread in the hotel dining room (incredibly kind on their part); we had shopped at a nearby Monoprix. We decided to end the day with a walk by the Seine, arriving near the Eiffel tower at sunset, staying to watch its lights first sparkle then turn a beautiful off-white lace. We caught a taxi back to Hotel Bonaparte and called it a night.
